While all you assholes were being blinded by your Hollywood big shots in anticipation of the Oscars, Adult Swim was making moves.
In case you missed it, Adult Swim aired the "pilot" of Bag Boy on Friday, a fake sitcom starring John C. Reilly's awkward health correspondent character Steve Brule. Excuse me, Doctor Steve Brule, AKA the best character that has ever been on television. You may think you want another show with Walter White, but what you really want is Steven Brule to have his second, yes second television show.
If there were any justice in the world, Bag Boy would become the new "Too Many Cooks," as it expands on the viral clip's skewering of corny sitcom tropes, puppet animal sidekick and all.
|Bringo! You dang dingus!|
As it stands, Bag Boy seems to have been mostly ignored—the full episode currently has just over 7,000 views on the Adult Swim site. It's perfect for fans of Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, the commerce-obsessed comedy team who co-wrote the episode with Reilly. Bag Boy features a few members of Tim & Eric's stable of weirdos that they tend to parade out in their productions.
Bag Boy was everything that you would want: awkward, weird, disgusting, and hilarious. Check it out in its entirety above. For a taste of its particular brand of weirdness, I have provided the perfect picture below.
Go watch it, you turkey.
